Paediatric and Pregnancy Chiropractic Services
Pre and post-natal massage therapies are a specialty offering by Elia Chiropractic, to nurture the all-important health and wellness of expectant mothers.
Low back pain, headaches, and stress are common pregnancy symptoms that respond well to massage therapy. Massage improves circulation by bringing oxygen to the body tissues, relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility, and helps to break down scar tissue.
We also offer paediatric specialist treatment for kids. Conditions like colic often respond well to chiropractic treatments, and a range of benefits can be attributed to providing appropriate, nurturing care from a young age.
Dr Samantha Elia is passionate about caring for families, in particular children and babies. She utilises a number of gentle, safe, and effective techniques and has completed a Diplomate of Paediatric Chiropractic and specialises in treating pregnant mothers, babies and children.

Infants & Young Children
Your child may experience a range of symptoms that may hinder their developmental growth stages – we are here to help! Problems like, persistent crying, irritability, ear infections and problems with learning and concentration.
Our Paediatric Chiropractor can assess the symptoms your child is presenting and prepare a solution and management plan to overcome these problems and refer you to appropriate health care professionals where needed.
Dr. Samantha Elia uses gentle, low-force chiropractic adjustments to help relieve the stress and tension in the spine, pelvis, and cranium causing your child’s pain.
Spinal and pelvic misalignment in infants and children can occur from birth strain as well as in utero position. Realignment, along with easing tension in neck and upper body as well as the pelvic region can decrease irritation and interference in the spine. This can encourage and promote optimal health and wellbeing during these crucial stages of development.
Teens & Young Adults
Adolescent skeletal structure takes time to mature and goes through many different changes, challenges during puberty and developmental stages.
We regularly provide care for teens experiencing neck or back pain, and aim to diagnose early onset conditions like, scoliosis and help with headaches and your adolescent’s concentration and performance at school.
